Representing another jewel from the Benetti family, the all-new motor yacht Illusion V, previously known as ‘Illusion I’ and ‘FB257’, was one of the stars at the 2014 Monaco Yacht Show. Superbly penned by the yard’s in-house team and Green & Mingarelli, luxury superyacht Illusion V is a beautiful 58-meter four decked steel and aluminium vessel, built at the Benetti Livorno shipyard for a European Owner.
Designed for commercial luxury yacht charter use, the four-deck Illusion V yacht will be also used privately, thanks to a layout that includes one VIP cabin and four guest cabins, in addition to the owner’s cabin, giving her a total capacity of 12 + 1 passengers. The owner’s cabin, proceeded by a relax area, is full beam with large lateral windows and a beautiful sofa to one side. The owner’s bathroom, just like the VIP bathroom, is entirely finished with an onyx décor, with both sinks in carved marble. Extremely spacious, with two entryways and his and her dressing rooms, it includes an enormous central shower, a bathtub and twin toilets.
Benetti FB 257 luxury yacht Illusion V also features a generous Sun Deck. This boasts a marvelous mosaic Jacuzzi, which is surrounded by sunbathing recliners, mobile bar, barbecue grill and dinette. The whole area can be sheltered from the wind thanks to a double sliding-doored veranda, but the six window skylight always leaves a view of the starry heavens. All the external furnishings are in dark painted teak, while the marble is rustic travertine.
Made of steel and aluminium, the 58m super yacht Illusion V (ex Illusion I, FB 257) by Benetti can reach a top speed of 15,5 knots and a cruising speed of 15 knots. She is powered by twin Caterpillar 3512C diesel engines.
Illusion V superyacht is a very refined yacht with a very original décor, designed to furnish maximum possible comfort at sea, with record low levels of noise and vibration. She proudly maintains Benetti’s high class reputation worldwide.
